    Agent-Based Ubiquitous Systems : 9 Lessons Learnt
    The recent emergence of agent prototyping environments for developing Java agents (Aglets, JATlite, JACK, Agent Factory) and the availability of the J2ME (Java 2Micro Edition) on light devices (PDAs and cellular phones) provides the ability for strong agenthood to be delivered in the mobile and ubiquitous sector. This is an experience paper that discusses the lessons learnt in the construction of agent-based ubiquitous sytems. Within this paper we consider four such systems namely Ad-me, WAY, Gulliver’s Genie, and Easishop. They all have been developed at UCD. The common denominator for all prototypes is the use of Lightweight BDI agents and the intelligent pre-caching of content.
